Odd and obscure space adventure
Captain Blood is a pseudo-classic sci-fi adventure that is notable for its innovation and storyline, but is less enamoured for its actual gameplay, a trait which this sequel carries over to a certain extent. The rather bizarre plot follows the original game's hero, a half-man/half-machine genius named Bob Morlock, as he explores the universe in search of the Big Bang, the original source of all life. This generally involves interacting with aliens via a multiple-choice conversation system but for anyone expecting puzzles, they will be sorely disappointed, for there are none to be found. Commander Blood is really more of a narrative experience than a true game in many senses and while some may find its story involving, it has to be said it is also probably too obscure for many gamers. Gameplay also is minimal and frustratingly linear, with little opportunity for exploration and with players being told pretty much exactly what to do. Graphically, the game is undeniably stylish, helping to create a believable universe but really this is a curiosity that is definitely not a game for everyone. However, for those looking for something a little unusual, Commander Blood may be worth a look.
